An empty flagpole standing in the middle of Kellogg’s Memorial Park symbolizes a months-long dispute between veterans and city leaders that has escalated into recall petitions being filed against the mayor and all six City Council members. The flagpole formerly displayed both the American flag and a Tree City USA flag, until the commanders of Silver Valley veterans groups informed the city in August that flying both on the same pole was improper.

Residents were invited to attend a Tree City USA open house last week at Veterans’ Memorial Park to discuss trees, take inventory of the trees in the park and offer suggestions for the new ordinance.
